8 Kolobrzeska, Bydgoszcz, Poland

Krakow, Gdansk and Warszawa are popular destinations for school groups to join a class trip with WWII lessons. One of such trips was undertaken by our French client between 18 and 20 March 2014. The group of 41 students, 3 teachers and a driver were accommodated in Kraków’s Moon Hostel just by the old Jewish Kazimierz District of Kraków. During their stay their itinerary apart from general attractions emphasized WWII historic sites such as: Kazimierz District sightseeing with entrance to the Old Synagogue, Remuh Synagogue and cemetery, they also had thematic walk in former ghetto area, they visited Schindler’s Factory Museum and Galicja Museum where they had a meeting with a Holocaust witness. It is always a very strong point of our trips when students are able to talk with a person who survived WWI or their family members. The highlight of the trip was of course a visit in Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp Museum (enlisted at UNESCO World Heritage List). A visit in all these historic places had a great effect on the students and was truly memorable history lesson. We recommend such a program to all high school students.
